From 10:00 am to 2:00 pm residents will be able to learn about the relief road construction, review detailed plans and ask questions about the scheme’s development.
Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment said: “Whitehill & Bordon is to benefit from major regeneration over the next 20 years and this relief road will be integral to its infrastructure. The road will underpin the area’s regeneration, supporting the redevelopment of the Louisburg Barracks and improve access to the area.”
The relief road route will start at the Whitehill crossroads in the south and travel north, along the formerly abandoned railway line, before routing through Louisburg Barracks and re-connecting with the A325.
Councillor Ferris Cowper, Leader of East Hampshire District Council said: “I have always stressed the importance of getting the infrastructure of the town right and in place before house building starts and I am very pleased that the relief road work is underway.”
“The public exhibition will include a chance to see plans, ask questions and find out more about the relief road so I would recommend that as many people as possible from the local area take an interest and goes along.”
Councillor Adam Carew, Leader of Whitehill Town Council added: “The event on 8 December is an excellent opportunity for the public to find out more about the work and how it may affect them over the coming months. Motorists won’t be the only group to benefit; the road is being built with cycle paths, pedestrian footways and consideration for wildlife in the area.”
Work on Phase 1 of the relief road started on Monday 28 September 2015 and the project is due to be completed in the autumn of 2016.
